Make a donation between now and Dec 31st and it will go twice as far, thanks to a generous donor who will match all donations up to $15,000.00

There are three primary programs to support Tri-Valley community pets :

Spay / Neuter Program - This program gives assistance to help defray surgery costs from veterinarians thus reducing stray and feral over-population in our community.

Your generous donation of;

Urgent Care / Advanced Procedures - This program exists to help cover one-time or emergency costs so companion animals do not have to be euthanized simply because their owners can't afford the necessary medical care.

We want to thank the following veterinary hospitals for their on-going support of Paws In Need.

Community Program - This program targets companion pets in need of veterinary care that are owned by low / no income families. Some of these folks have little else in their life and their animal(s) provide them constant companionship.

For more information on any of these programs email info@Paws-In-Need.org or leave a voicemail at (925) 551-1877.
